    They signed Grandal for 4/98...yes...$98M.

    Those guys are...special haha.

    Damn. He’s going to be way too expensive. We need to look for cheaper options like Bryce Harper.

    I mean, they mention in the article that it was just for fun and that most of those moves would never be made. Pretty harmless.

    I'm betting that within the next 24 hours someone on reddit will be espousing the brilliance of the article and how that would be the "perfect offseason"... I don't know why I still use that reddit sub. It makes me want to pull my hair out everyday lol. Hey, at least it is better than the dreaded facebook group.

    Would honestly love to know what drives you to be such a prick. They're fans and aren't huge numbers people. Does that REALLY cause you to lose sleep at night?

    It's great to learn things from people when they have even a speck of humility and understand the sun doesn't rise and set with them. Unfortunately you can't even get into that zip code.

    I swear your life would be unbelievably better if you just didn't take yourself so *ucking seriously.
    Waters is intersting too. Would prefer a guy that projects to more power though. (2017 Draft Thread)

    If they don't make additions they can expect the same 3-5 win improvement they saw last year. That makes the Braves a 75-78 win team. (What's the best we could hope for in 2018?)

    No, the rest of them just aren't willing to waste time responding to you.

    Maybe you should cry some more.

    Hopefully you cheer up in time to bless us with another dose of stupid sometime tomorrow.

    Listening to Craig Mish's podcast this morning. He said he knew that people are saying his reports are false but that all people have to do is look at his track record reporting on the Marlins. And he's right about that, it's really good. He also talked about the semantics part of this, that teams can talk players and make trade offers without it being an "official trade offer" to a team but that "the Braves appear to be all in on this."

    He said the Marlins really like Ian Anderson, which scares me. I think Anderson and Touki are the only two I wouldn't include in a Realmuto trade.

    The Marlins want "a team's best pitching prospect" in the deal. He said that complicates things with Houston because they're very unlikely to part with Forrest Whitley. Also said the Rockies are not being talked enough as a potential destination for Realmuto.

    What the heck is a virtual massage? I agree that the fees on this board are breaking my budget.

    Reminds me of the time when I asked the front desk at a hotel I was staying at in Tokyo if I had any messages and there was a little misunderstanding. Ah, the good old days.

    Again Mish is way more reliable than any of our guys or the other Fish reporters.

    My willingness to deal Anderson turns on his control. If our brass is sure the control problems are legitimate and he's going to be a 4+ BB/9 pitcher in the majors, I'd deal him this winter. However, if our brass things his control problems are easily correctable and he could be a sub-3 BB/9 guy in the majors, I'd have a much harder time letting go of him.

    Personally, I think Anderson ends up as a number 3 starter with a few years of number 2 starter production mixed in. If that's what he is, I have no problem with him headlining a Realmuto trade.

    The more I look at the Mariners/Rays deal, the more I like it - for both sides. Good fits for both, and proves that if you're not trying so hard to "win" trades or completely maximize value that you can still do this without having to tear things all the way down to the studs if you're able to find someone else to deal with that's not simply looking to screw you at all costs. Dipoto is still really good at his job.

    That's 10 trades between those two teams since 2015 - pretty *amn impressive in my book.

    Still think those who think the Mariners can't get substantially better without blowing things up completely are wrong. If they don't move their biggest pieces (Paxton, Haniger, Segura, Diaz), they just got markedly better yesterday, and saved enough money that they could step out and sign Zook to replace Zunino. Still leaves them with some money to upgrade their staff. They could easily go out and do that while saving money if they moved Paxton for MLB-ready rotation pieces as well. If they're looking to add pieces to step in NOW (rather than higher-rated pieces that are further away), a Paxton for Newcomb/Wilson or Fried swap suddenly fills their rotation and saves more money. It would leave them without an Ace (unless Newk takes a Folty-like step forward), but a Newk, Leake, Gonzales, Wilson grouping is probably better than what they currently have, and they'd probably have enough money left to go after somebody like Anibal to round out their rotation.

    They're still not likely going to challenge Houston, but the Astros are currently down Keuchel, Morton, McCullers, Gonzalez, Mac, and Gattis and the Winter Meetings aren't even here yet.
